As one of the leading providers of elevators and escalators, Schindler is committed to shape a sustainable future through technical innovations and improve its environmental and social performance.
To reduce the ecological footprint of its campus in Jiading, Shanghai, Schindler installed a solar power system on the roof of the world's largest escalator assembly plant, spreading over 31,287 square meters.

Reducing annual carbon emissions of the Jiading campus
After the final inspection and confirmation made by Jiading Power Supply Bureau, the solar power system started to convert solar energy to electricity and is expected to generate 4,420,00 kWh per year which covers approximately 80% of the plant's annual electricity consumption. This helps to reduce annual carbon emissions.
At the launch ceremony Rene Matthe, President of the Schindler Escalator Division, thanked the constructor Jinko Power and Schindler's solar power Shanghai plant team for successfully implementing the solar power system.
